New members of the San Francisco Association of REALTORS® are required to complete an orientation course on the Code of Ethics within 25 days of their acceptance as a REALTOR® member in accordance with the Association's bylaws. If a new member fails to take the course within the 25-day time frame, he or she will have their membership placed on inactive status until the requirement is filled.

The two and a half hour DVD course is presented at the Association's headquarter offices every Friday afternoon at 1:15 p.m. The cost is $15 for all SFAR members.
